Hello,

I'm building a new PC and is only missing the Power Supply and Case.

VGA: Zotac GeForce GTX680 AMP 2GB
Processor: Intel Core i7-3770K
MotherBoard: ASUS TUF Series SABERTOOTH Z77
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 GB
HD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III

What power supply would you recommend for this PC? I really do not understand about power supply.
And the case? One with good ventilation ... In the future, I was thinking of putting a Corsair Hydro Series H100.

Thanks

A good quality 500W or more would be great. Check the recommended PSUs list on this forum somewhere ;) 

As for the case pick something you like. I recommend a good air cooler over the H100.

I second the cooler opinion. Consider one of these

As for PSU and case what are you looking to spend? Do you want a cheaper PSU or one that is of the highest quality? Do you like a flashy case or just something plain looking.

The PSU listed above me is one that I highly recommend.

I wanted a PSU with high quality. I can spend 150 bucks.
About the case, I wanted a case with good ventilation and has space for a good cooler, I was thinking in H100. But this cooler show you it feels good.

I liked this case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Is it good?

Yes its good and whats more it will fit the H100i just perfectly, but be sure to get the new i variant of H100s as they solved the noisey pump issue.

Can you find any CoolerMaster HAF cases or possibly a Antec 1200? One case I personally like is the Cougar Evolution.
HAF series- http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/category.php?category_b...
HAF X- http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/category.php?category_b...
Antec 1200- http://www.antec.com/product.php?id=693&fid=4
Cougar Evolution- http://www.cougar-world.com/us/products/pc_case/evoluti...
There are a few different models (black as above, black and red and white and black).

Personally I'd say the HAF X is better but that NVidia limited edition is most likely sold out I haven't seen them in stock for a while now).

I found a shop here in my country. The single version of HAF X is the NVidia. But it's so ugly. But it's so ugly. I wanted this corsair 500R but do not have here.

If you don't like it then don't get it. It's not worth it to spend that much on a case you don't like. None of the cases listed are really bad just post the ones you like the most that they have. Neither of those Thermaltake towers are bad I just don't personally like the looks although if you do those could be a good choice.

My friend recommended me a computer store. And I found that more cases and found the corsair.

Which has better quality HAF XM pr Carbide Series 500R?

That's corsair has no problem cooling?
If it is good, equal or similar to HAF XM I'd take it.

So I'll get the Corsair.

The PSU would be this SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W?
Or recommend better?
